Hundreds of Edo youths gathered in Ogida barracks, Benin city, last weekend (Dec 7th- Dec.9th) to participate in the first under 18 trials of Oloke Soccer Academy.
Oloke Soccer Academy is a new soccer agency that has concluded partnerships with football clubs in different tiers across Europe, America and Asia.
The Bello -Osagie brothers, who founded and own the Academy, said, it has always been a dream of ours to find a way to assist Edo youths with life changing opportunities, the government alone cannot do it all. Our objective is to empower Edo youths and provide a platform for them to showcase their talents to the world. We also want to use Soccer to teach them leadership skills. There will be more updates soon on more trials and more activities from Oloke Soccer Academy. The turn out and potential of the boys was very encouraging.
